The most expensive Bundesliga departure ever and arguably, the one that is yet to prove worth it.

Barcelona paid a club record fee for Dembele and simultaneously smashed the Bundesliga record in the process.

Yet, the Frenchman is yet to show that was faith he deserved. He was meant to replace Neymar but hasn’t come close.

18 goals in 65 games is no return, and the fact Barca would happily sell to get Neymar back this summer shows how poor an investment Dembele has proven to be.
